Jackson Library Resources

University Libraries defines diversity as the vibrant variety of human characteristics that combine to shape each one of us. These characteristics include not only the familiar categories of race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation, but also: age, cognitive style, disability, economic, educational and geographic background, languages spoken, marital status, political affiliation, religious beliefs and more.

Valuing diversity means recognizing that we are all shaped by numerous and varied factors, making each of us uniquely qualified to contribute to the collective goal of the libraries — to serve the diverse information needs of our diverse user groups. Diversity Resources Page

The Jackson Library fully supports the LGBTQ community on campus by supplying books and information. The library staff has put together a list of library materials (see Download below), categorized by topic, of resources helpful to LGBTQ students and their friends. If you are looking for current LGBTQ journals, information about political involvement, support materials for coming out, or exploration into some other aspect of LGBTQ life, then this document is a terrific place to start.

The library staff strongly affirms the rights of all students to access accurate information without shame or judgement. If you cannot find what you need, or have any other questions, please ask for assistance at the information desk.
